Leading Estates of the World Celebrates their 50th Anniversary
With the Publication of Golden Horizons

Santa Fe, New Mexico 1/31/2019 — Leading Estates of the World, the original publication dedicated to showcasing the world’s most extraordinary residential estates, celebrates its 50th anniversary with the publication of Golden Horizons.

The past fifty years have demonstrated the continuation of what has forever been the innovative nature of man—heralding times of expansion with the spirit of adventure in the pursuit and exploration of unknown horizons. Publisher Chris Webster says, “To many, the fulfillment of owning one’s home—especially one of the world’s most elite—and sharing experiences therein, is the fulfillment of a lifetime dream. Leading Estates of the World is universally acknowledged as the birthplace of celebrating grand manor lifestyle. As Leading Estates of the World’s founder, Robert H. Kelsey, put it: ‘For those with the means, indulge yourself; for those with the dreams, enjoy yourself.’” Golden Horizons celebrates the 50th anniversary of Leading Estates of the World. The publishers are proud to perpetuate the original and premier publication that majestically showcases the world’s most extraordinary residential estates. “In this issue,” Webster adds, “we highlight strategic site locations chosen by entertainers Johnny Carson and Frank Sinatra in Malibu, developers Howard Hughes Corporation in Hawai’i and Related Companies’ Hudson Yards in Manhattan, former President Richard Nixon’s “Western White House” in San Clemente, and The World, a residential community which uniquely is able to change location at will. In addition, we continue our tradition of honoring and showcasing historic museum estates.” Enjoy the horizons of Loch Lomond surrounding Rossdhu House, the majestic 18th-century Georgian Scottish manor characterized as “the finest collection of rooms in the world.” The Golden Horizons print and digital editions present a tribute to the transformative experiences of LE Style in an enticing collection of fairytale refuges, world-class residential developments, and historic, handcrafted properties of distinction. From the Belle Epoque elegance of Buenos Aires, Argentina, to the Old World charm of Tuscany’s golden hillsides, from the tony Hamptons to the majesty of Malibu, join the journey as fellow prospectors seeking incomparable treasures. Brokers within The Estates Network possess the key to the journey’s ever-evolving map, combining market intelligence with transparent communication as the basis of professional relationships.
